Kentucky commits still recruiting Jaden McDaniels to Lexington

Future Cats are still putting in work to get McDaniels to join their class.

With Jaden McDaniels not deciding on May 15th like everyone thought, that means Kentucky still has some hope of landing the talented big man after the momentum seemed to swing back toward the Washington Huskies.

And fellow Kentucky Wildcats Dontaie Allen and Tyrese Maxey are putting in work to try and get McDaniels to Lexington.

Both Allen and Maxey posted a photo of McDaniels in a Kentucky jersey on their Instagram story and both definitely made sure to tag him so he sees it.

The longer that McDaniels waits, the more it would seem to bode well for the Cats. And with the deadline to officially sign a letter of intent passing yesterday, McDaniels can only sign scholarship papers to whichever school he chooses to attend.

However, that’s been the plan all along for McDaniels, so it’s no surprise to see him wait until after the national letter of intent deadline to make his decision.

It’s just a waiting game as of this moment. The decision could come this week or draft on several more weeks. That would give him more time to see how the NBA Draft decisions play out.

All we can do now is have patience and let the process play out.
